King Solomon, the wisest and richest man in the world of his day, once stated: "A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men". Your unique gift will make room for you in this world, opening doors of opportunity, while drawing the assistance and resources you need to fulfill your purpose.
Perhaps you have been using your gift to some extent, but haven't really applied it with a sense of personal purpose. Or maybe you have, but you have been burying your dream, settling for a lesser existence. You may already be very accomplished in a certain field but secretly wish that you were engaged in something else different with your life. Am I speaking to you?
If you pursue your true purpose, you will be internally motivated to exercise your inherent gift. In contrast, if you do something you were not born to do, you will have to make an effort to perform it. Maintaining your leadership position or your job will become a burden and a drain on you.
True leaders are always looking for more knowledge. King Solomon stated it this way: "The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge".
When someone is in the wrong place, they sometimes have to prop themselves up with a surplus of support individuals and resources. But when they find the place for which they were born, their life begins to flow naturally. They no longer need to manufacture motivation because they can't wait to get started each day and initiate the next step that will bring them closer to seeing their purpose fulfilled.
Remember, it is the Word of God that will stand throughout all this chaos. So make it your life, because it really is your life.
